Location

We will be having fun on an overnight backpacking trip on the Tumble Creek trail in the Buffalo Peaks wilderness area.  We are camping roughly 2 miles south of the trailhead.



For more info Contact

Leader contact info for this trip: Kim Thornberry (513) 608-4324  kimthornberry@gmail.com

FYI - there is no cell reception at the trailhead or through the entire trip until we are back on Highway 285 on Sunday.



Details

We will be enjoying an overnight backpacking trip on the Tumble Creek trail in the Buffalo Peaks wilderness area. The hike will be approx 2 miles to camp. On Sunday morning we will enjoy an off-trail navigation hike (~2 miles) to an interesting location between camp and the trailhead.  



Please dress appropriately for hiking off trail through thick brush on Sunday and expect rain over the weekend. 



Water will be available at the campsite so plan to hike in with enough water for a 400 - 500ft of elevation change, 2 mile hike.  (1.5 - 2L should be enough for most people).




Notes

This trip was transitioned to a one-day field trip due to severe weather alerts.
